This Week in Reading - January 15

It's Sunday Post time!  This is hosted by the awesome Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week.  I'm also linking up with Kathryn over at The Book Date for What Are You Reading?

What I Got:

Treble at the Jam Fest by Leslie Budewitz - This is an author I've been wanting to read for ages and I love a good foodie cozy! (NetGalley)

Starlight Bridge by Debbie Mason - Another author I've been wanting to read for awhile and this one features a hidden book in an inn.  How can I resist? (NetGalley)

A Perfect Obsession by Heather Graham - I can't resist a Heather Graham book! (NetGalley)

Forever a Hero by Linda Lael Miller - This is the third in the series about three brothers.  I've really enjoyed the first two and am looking forward to Mace's story. (NetGalley)

Seduce Me Cowboy by Maisey Yates - I'm not a big fan of Yates' titles but the main character in this book is the main character in a previous book and I really want to know more about him.  (NetGalley)

Someone to Love by Donna Alward - This is the second book in a new series by an author I've really enjoyed in the past.  I'm excited to see where she goes with this new series set in a little town in Vermont. (Publisher)


Reading: Fudge and Jury by Ellie Alexander and Sad Cypress by Agatha Christie

Listening: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again by Frank Cottrell Boyce and read by David Tennant who should read all things from now on.

Watching: Now that regular shows are coming back on I've been watching The Big Bang Theory, Bull and all the NCIS shows.  J and I are watching Top Chef and Remington Steele which is on Hulu and features a ridiculously young Pierce Brosnan.

Off the Blog:

Not much to report this week!  No more threats of ice so the routine has been grinding on.  I headed down to visit my grandparents on Thursday and won't be back till Monday.  I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone when I get back!  I'm actually going down by myself which is pretty novel.  J is keeping the Tornado home and they're both very excited about going to see movies, playing video games and just hanging out for a few days on their own.  I have no idea what I'll be walking into when I come home!  They may have created their own language by that point.

My reading year is still going great and I've been making great progress on the books I had planned to read.  I'm going to start throwing some classics and heavier books in which will slow things down a bit but I'm looking forward to them.

  1. I LOVE that cover of Treble at the Jam Fest. A new Budewitz? I may need to get back to her, I've only read the one. Remingston Steele... wow. Reminds me of Magnum PI, lol.

    Have a great visit and good luck when you get home ha ha!

  2. How nice for you to have time away for yourself. I hope you get some relaxing time in and I'm sure it will be good for the Tornado!

  3. Mmm some authors I wouldn't mind trying but trying to keep the list from growing. Donna Alward and Debbie Mason would like to try and think I read the first in the LL Miller series, but just haven't got to the rest of them. Maybe later in the year! Hope your trip goes really well.

  4. That's cute that they're looking forward to their bonding time! And that's nice that you get a break to visit with your grandparents too. I've also been off to a good start with reading this year, but most of the books I've read have been quick, easy reads, so my reading will probably slow up soon too.

  5. I always find travelling alone an odd experience because I'm so used to having to pack for a family and worry how to keep a six year old occupied on trips. It's also nice though, time to think and listen to music I enjoy. Have a good trip.

  6. You got some great books. I have heard of a few of the authors I need to check out the rest. I hope you having a great time at your grandparents. Have a great week.

  15. Treble at the Jam Fest is definitely "cozy" looking, just perfect for a cozy mystery.

    I hope you can find your kitchen when you get home! Or maybe your guys are good about cleaning up. LOL.

    Week in Review

  17. TREBLE's book cover makes me wish it was summer! We're only in January and I'm already done with winter. Sigh. I hope you have a good visit with your grandparents and you have a great reading week!

  18. Lots of new books this week! I hope you enjoy your trip alone. It is nice to get a little time away from family but I bet you will be really missing them by the time you get home. I hope your grandfather is still improving. Have a great week!

  19. How cute your husband and son will have some man time. Have safe travels and a nice time at your grandparents'.

  20. I love the new books you have! Treble sounds like a fun mystery and I have to check out the earlier books. I hope you have a safe trip home. Have a great week!

  22. I hope you are enjoying your weekend away! Hopefully the house is still standing when you return. LOL

  23. I didn't even know there was a follow up to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I'll bet J and the Tornado had a great boys weekend!

  24. I love Remington Steele! I used to watch it way back in the day. And NCIS Los Angeles is my all time favorite.
    I've read a lot of Heather Graham and Linda Lael Miller in the past... I need to catch up on their newer stuff.

  25. I think David Tennant would be brilliant reading any book, he has a luscious voice!!

  26. Ooo I haven't played on Netgalley in a while so missed the Yates. Off to look!
